For a second print, you have done a mighty fine job - I don't recall my early prints to be anywhere near as good and I have to work at getting decent ones now. Doesn't help that I've been using boxes of vintage papers that are older than some of us here.

Ta very much. I did lose about a dozen prints though due to fingerprints and general messiness (didn't realise you can't really touch the surface as you put them under the enlarger). After so many losses, I stopped and got a lot more methodical about it. I think it'll be a little while before a dare to move on to fibre prints.

Avi, excellent urban landscape/architecture image. Do you print borderless or simply trim your borders off?
Ok, this morning I had 5 surprises in my mailbox. 5 Beautiful surprises I would say:
aluk: Château Frontenac, curiously, even if it is just at 2 hours from my home, I never saw this hotel that way. A pin sharp photo, not a lot of details in the sky, but in this situation, it works well for me. Good work !!!
mike c: Clamming at sunset, what a picture. I always like that kind of silhouette, I love the glossy paper. The sky is very nice.
mooseontheloose: Zen photographer, this picture will put a smile on my face for months to come. Details of the texture are incredible.
paul_c5x4: This picture makes me travel into another time. Clarity and sharpness are beautiful. I love it.
Dave Martiny: Street sweeper, it makes me ask myself a coupe of questions about this guy and his life. Pin sharp and a lot of details (look at the shoes). Another nice card.
Thanks guys and gals for sharing all those beautiful images with me. Should start to print mines this weekend, I will do my best to be at your level.

First card of round #20 received today:
Looking up from Mick Fagan. A great start of this round. Very nice shot, great lighting. Mick, thanks for your comment about my card from the previous round.
I plan to send my cards earlier than in the last few rounds. I've decided to do two sets this time, and I've already printed one set. All that remains is to decide on which neg to print for the second set, then print it.

Rachelle's postcard arrived a few days ago. that was the wake up call for me to get to the darkroom and start printing, which i did yesterday. today, with the help of my son who designed and printed the labels, my postcards are ready to be mailed. i keep handling the prints with my fingertips, hard for me to think that they will be manipulated by countless people before reaching their destination...!
